Access issues

Access is via a 25m abseil. There are two bolts with rusty hangers (look dodge) that are separated by more than 5m. It is possible to sling a boulder (be careful which one you choose) to back up the first bolt you encounter. Probably best to leave the rap line hanging while you are climbing. It is possible to escape via Night Moves, but this requires a lead from the anchor up moderate terrain with factor 2 potential. Best solution is to take 2 ropes + long slings + cordelette and ascending gear to climb out.
